Bolt's comment, when asked by reporters for his plans for the non-Olympic, non-world championship season, will send a frisson of excitement from Moscow to Scotland as organisers contemplate their July 23-Aug 3 event getting an unquantifiable boost from one of the world's most recognisable sportsmen.
Bolt has mentioned the possibility before but the plan seems to be firming up.
"On 'off-years' I try not to stress myself too much," he said after his 9.77 victory in a rainy Moscow.
"But next year I'll have to train hard and push myself. I'll be on the circuit trying to run fast times.
"I've never been to the Commonwealths so that's something I'm thinking about."
"It's always something good to add to the resume."
